Clever Girl: A Nellie Bly NovellaScritto da: David Blixt Letto da: Janice L Blixt Audio
“A professional lobbyist is a plague-spot upon the body politic.”—Judiciary Committee, State of New York
"Tell a story to catch a story."—Nellie Bly
From International Bestselling Author David Blixt! Nellie Bly sets out to trap the greatest villain she has ever encountered: the King of the Lobby!
March 1888. A blizzard has frozen all of New York, and Nellie Bly is going stir-crazy, stuck at home with her mother and her detestable brother Albert. When a political speech inspires her, she and Colonel Cockerill plot out her most daring undercover assignment since she emerged from the Blackwell's Island insane asylum: she's going to trap the most crooked man in politics, Edward R. Phelps, the self-styled "King" of the Albany lobby.
But catching a fox as wily as Phelps will take all her nerve, and she's learning that her meteoric rise has left her with few allies in the newspaper world. On her own, she must first trap Phelps, then confront him before a jury of his allies: the state senators of New York.
Based on the real-life events and her own reporting, Clever Girl shows Nellie Bly at her furious best!
